Regular maintenance due to heaving caused by tree roots

A section of the Courtenay Riverway trail will be closed Wednesday, May 9 and Thursday, May 10 for repaving. The trail closure will be between the Mansfield Drive parking lot and south to 31st Street.

“This is regular repair to where the tree roots buckle up the pavement,” explained City of Courtenay parks manager, Mike Kearns.“We do [this] every year, to try and address the worst areas.”

Please anticipate that the trail will be inaccessible around the construction area and plan to utilize other parts of the trail. To access the trail heading south to Sandpiper Drive utilize the entrance at 31st Street. To access the trail heading north park at the Mansfield Drive entrance and head towards the Airpark walkway loop.
